Yesterday I wrote a post about new season of Burn Notice (June 4, 9 pm EST). Today, I’m going to write another good news related to Burn Notice. It’s a sweepstakes, but this time, the grand prize isn’t a Saab, but a 4-days-3night trip for the winner and a guest to Miami! Moreover, the winner will get round trip tickets and accomodations, and Burn Notice Tour! The Sweepstakes will start on 5/21/09 and end on 8/12/09. And, they’ll also giving out weekly prizes, like Burn Notice Tote, Burn Notice DVD, and some other stuff.

All you have to do, is fill in a form weekly, and then pray 😆 Although, I do like the Saab sweepstakes (because there are games involved), but this one is much simpler and more straight forward. Anyways, here’s the link to enter the sweepstakes. To read more about the sweepstakes, click here for the official rules. Good luck 🙂

There’s 1 more show that’s going to be added to my sunday-tv list: The Celebrity Apprentice. When I found out that it was on Sundays, I was afraid that the time slot would clash with The Amazing Race. If it happened, I wouldn’t know which one I would choose to watch live. If you know me, you’d know that I’d rather watch 1 full show and watch the other later online, instead of switching channels like crazy. Hmm…maybe I will choose Amazing Race over The Apprentice because there will be more drama in the Apprentice (not really a fan of bickering).

Anyway, I don’t have to choose now. I was so happy when I found out that The Apprentice will air at 9 pm EST, just right after the Amazing Race.

As promised, I’m going to list all the official nominess for all categories of our very first Hulu Award. Our job as panelists is over, we have proposed nominees that we think are worthy and now it’s your turn to cast your vote. As you might have guessed, it’s going to be a long post, so click on read more to see and vote. 🙂

Busy

Posted on: February 17, 2009

Been a litle busy since last weekend. I just had time to catch up with last week’s Burn Notice and Monk. Michael was still in the quest to find the person who wanted him dead, he didn’t get any info, but that guy (whoever he was) was alarmed when Mike was trying to poke around. I also just watched this week’s Chuck, where Chuck and Sarah had to pose as a married couple. Pretty funny, but in the end their relationship got a minor set back. Just in case you wonder where I watch the shows (no I don’t watch them from DVR), I watch them online at the network’s official website: NBC.com and USANetwork.com

On other news, Hulu Award will have official nominees for all categories hopefully by next week. I’ll post the list of all nominees (or perhaps the poll link from polldaddy) so you can vote 🙂 Speaking of polldaddy, I’ve had some ideas for poll on by blog for a while (before wordpress had the feature). Now that they have it, I can’t remember what I wanted to do with the poll 😆

Just a friendly reminder for Survivor and Amazing Race fans, starting this week, new seasons of the shows will kick off on CBS. The premier episode of Survivor will air on Feb 12 at its usual time 8 pm EST, and Amazing Race on Feb 15 at 8 pm EST. I’m not really a big fan of survivor, but I’m gonna watch Amazing Race for sure 🙂

It’s been more than 3 months since Hulu Award Nomination kicked off and as a panelist, I’m exicted to see everything is coming together. We’re not quite done yet though, all along the panelists have been nominating movies/tv shows/tv network/movie studios/short films/clips just to narrow down the eligible nominees into 5 for each category. We don’t have the list quite yet, because we still have 2 last categories to nominate. I’ll make a long post of the final nominees for each category once we have everything. As for now, I’m going to recap the journey of Hulu Award Nomination.

In total, we’ve had 12 weeks where we had to pick proposed nominees for each category. These are the categories:

  • Week 1: Best Sports Programming
  • Week 2: Best Classic Show, Best 80’s Show, Best 70’s Show
  • Week 3: Best Horror Movies, Best Documentary Feature, Best Dramatic Short
  • Week 4: Best Competitive Reality Show, Best Non-Competitive Reality Show, Best Celebrity Driven Reality Show
  • Week 5: Best Comedy Movie, Best Comedy TV Show, Best Comedic Short Films
  • Week 6: Best Dramatic Movie, Best Short Format Series (Comedy), Best Short Format Series (non-Comedy)
  • Week 7: Best Family Movie, Best Anime Series, Best Cartoon Series, Best Animated Shorts
  • Week 8: Best Travel/Leisure Show, Best Cooking/Food Show, Worst Reality Show
  • Week 9: Best Classic Movie, Best Action TV Series, Best Web Original, Worst Web Original
  • Week 10: Best Sci-Fi Movie, Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Series, Best Video Games Coverage, Worst Movie, Worst TV Series
  • Week 11: Best Talk & Interview Show, Best Informational Show, Best News Show, Best Major Network, Best TV Network, Best Movie Studio
  • Week 12: Best Movie, Best Scripted TV Show, Best Unscripted TV Shows, Best Comedy Clip, Best Non-Comedy Clip

As you can see, in the first week, we only had 1 category but as the week went by we got more and more categories to work with. I’m not complaining 😛 I like my job as the panelist; it’s been a major fun. Hats off to Matt, the Hulu Man, who worked so hard organizing this award. Keep up the good job 🙂

Many people have been trying to find out who the winner of Burn Notice Covert Ops sweepstakes that started half a year ago. I myself have been wondering the same thing, however, I haven’t heard any news about it. Maybe they only contacted the winners and they decided not to announce the winners? Also, maybe the winner wasn’t eligible, so the grand prize give away was nullified. Either way, I don’t know what’s going on, but they’re now starting new Covert Ops sweepstakes again. It has been started since January 22 when the 2nd part of the 2nd season begun airing. If you’re interested in playing, here’s the link to play: http://www.burnnoticeops.com/ Good luck 🙂

4-5. Best Clip (Comedy) & Best Clip (non-Comedy). For these categories, we don’t have an official list of eligible nominees, so it’s up to you and me to choose proposed nominees. If you know of any clip on Hulu that deserves some recognition, just post the name of the clip in the comments section. With a large number of clips on hulu, you can just search your memory banks or click here for comedy and here for non-comedy. By the way, clips of TV shows can also be nominated.

Okay, that’s the newest and last categories on Hulu Award. Next week, we are narrowing down the proposed nominees from all categories. Also, you can also still nominate from last week (and the week before)’s categories. Just go down a couple posts, or you can click on hulu-award tag, or you can vote at TheHuluReview.blogspot.com. Each category is conveniently listed in the upper right corner of the main page. Happy voting/commenting 😀

Continuing the Hulu Award Nomination, there are a couple new categories this week and they are: Best Talk & Interview Show, Best Informational Show, Best News Show, Best Major Network, Best TV Network, and Best Movie Studio. Yes, it’s quite a list of awards we are nominating this week, which means the offical winner of each categories will be announced soon 🙂 It might be tough to pick just one, but don’t worry you can nominate more than one. So comment away 🙂 Again, I’m using excerpt due to the long list of eligible nominees. Click on read more to view the eligible candidates and to comment.

4. Worst Movie and Worst Scripted TV Series. These are two separate categories, but the eligible candidates are the same from the eligible nominees from the Best Movie and TV shows from all genres. If I copy paste all of them this post will be very very long. Instead, if you really want to see the nominees, follow these links: Action, Classic, Family & Cartoon, Drama, Comedy, Horror, and Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Or, you can just simply nominate anything you want, and if they’re eligible, I’ll take your input into account.

You can nominate any movie/series you want, as many as you wish. If you never heard of any of them and interested in watching it, you can always borrow or rent the DVD, or to watch it for free, go to Hulu.com and search for the title, just make sure that it belongs to the right category. Again, if you cannot watch Hulu (I understand that Hulu currently is only available in US), you can still nominate any of these shows if you happen to know and like any of them.

PS: I know that not maybe none of your favorite shows/movies is listed above, but if you just happen to know or like a little, you can nominate them. Since this is a Hulu Award, we can only nominate shows that are available on Hulu. But then again, you can always comment and nominate whatever show you want 🙂 I’d love to hear what shows/movies you like. Happy commenting 😀
